Finding Your Soul in Dallas: Lakewood


Ahhh, Lakewood.

How to Get There...
Start at Mockingbird and Central Expressway.
Head east on Mockingbird (you'll pass Greenville and Skillman).
Turn right onto Abrams. Carry on for about 3-4 miles.
When you get to Gaston Ave, you're there.
Drive past Gaston and turn right on to LaVista . Park anywhere.

You're in the heart of Lakewood and I'll bet you like it here. 
Stately trees, older homes, apartment buildings and businesses keeping the Art Deco vibe alive.

Circa 1938, this movie theater now hosts live shows as well. 
The Lakewood continues the Rocky Horror Picture Show tradition by screenings monthly at midnight.

Located beside The Lakewood Theater, Matt's Rancho Martinez boasts a very cool patio. 

Never a cover charge for live music every night in this venue between Matt's and The Lakewood Theater. Dark, low-key, un-fussy, relaxed environment.
I refer to The Balcony Club as  "Dallas' best place to begin an affair".
Why? It's so dark in here, no one would ever know.

Let the truth be known...The Dixie House which was held in such high regard for its great southern home cooking is 'The Black-Eyed Pea' in disguise. Not that there is anything wrong with that but be advised. Was The Dixie House the first BEP or was it bought out by The BEP people? I don't know but you've gotta love their rolls and cornbread.
Across Gaston (from The Dixie House) this little breakfast place has two menus.
One for food, the other for Legal Services. 
The owner is an attorney.
